Recent court decisions in New Jersey courts have established same-sex couples' right to marry. This change to the law gives same-sex couples all of the same rights and responsibilities as opposite-sex couples.

At Ruvolo Law Group, LLC, we welcome these changes to the law. For same-sex couples seeking guidance and counsel, our law firm is a sound choice. Based in Morristown and Hackensack and serving clients across North and Central New Jersey, we offer extensive legal knowledge while providing our clients with individually tailored client service.

Dissolving a Civil Union

The dissolution of a civil union is very similar to a divorce, legally and practically speaking. Where our clients seek the dissolution of a civil union, we can assist with a variety of issues, including, among others:

  • Division of assets
  • Child custody
  • Child support

We help our clients explore all possible methods of dispute resolution to resolve these various issues, including negotiation, alternative dispute resolution and litigation.
